Tools for Tots

This may be one of the cutest baby toys I've ever seen. I may have even blogged about it before (that's how cute I think it is). I love that it's in a pink version for baby girls!

Made by Ozarknana, everything is constructed from soft fleece, completely safe for your favorite little Daddy's Helper.

How cool is this advent calender? I found the Recycled Art Company Etsy shop while browsing for Christmas gifts for the hubby today.

They also have this amazing map of the United States:

new pillowcase dresses


just listed on Etsy

We've finally listed our Caty dress on Etsy! The adorable matching bow is made by Tabitha at Bow Baby Bow. Sara Scott of Little Ones Rock took the amazing pictures, and the model belongs to Wendy of Custom Designs by Mimi.

Our Caty dress was designed with our own little sweet and sassy 2.5 year old in mind. It features a yoke collar and fun contrasting prints: a vintage-inspired floral and a black and white zebra print!

- adorable a-line cut
- gathering at the neckline
- professionally applied resin snaps at the shoulder
- lace trim
- seams finished with a serger

Wear as a dress in the summer or layered with jeans and a long-sleeve tee in the colder months. Plus, as your little one grows, the dress can be worn as a top!

Available in sizes:- 2, 3, 4/5, 6/7

good-bye gold, hello bulletin board!

I picked up this frame a while ago at the antique mall with the idea of turning it into a bulletin board.


Hubby removed the old mirror, and primered and painted the frame green. We used the old chipboard backing as a template to cut out a new corkboard insert from a roll purchased at the store. We actually ended up using 2 pieces back to back as the insert because it was pretty thin cork. Then we secured the cork in place by reusing the old backing.


from gold gaudy to funky gaudy!


ok maybe THIS is my new favorite!
